IMO, a developer who uses a cross-compilation environment on a Posix
platform should simply run the stock configure script in the top-level
directory, using the cross-compiler, cross-linker, etc.  If there are
any problems with that (e.g., the tests made by the configure script
do not cater to MinGW targets), they should be fixed in the Posix
configury stuff, I think.

Do you agree?  If so, the first step to see how well (or how badly ;-)
this works is to try.
